At the water, yes. Overall she is 61. The only Beebe to ever have the troll pit, and I think the last one ever built. Hull was laid in '97 and fitting was completed in '01.
You are also correct on the engine. Single Mitsubishi now with a bit over 4k hours. Sips fuel at about 1.3 gallons an hour doing 7 knots. She was originally built with twin engines to a single shaft. But during the first run there was an undocumented "catastrophic failure". The second engine was pulled and everything was reconfigured.
